The spin-off prequel to Z Nation, Black Summer, was set in at the very beginning of the apocalypse where millions of people would die and turn into undead. The series was far more serious than its comedic counterpart, and we would have loved to have seen more.

Not only is The Walking Dead the biggest zombie franchise currently, but it was once one of the biggest television shows that went toe-to-toe with Game of Thrones in its prime. Were it not for some seasons where the series’ quality dipped dramatically, then TWD would be ranked number one.

If it weren’t for Squid Game, All of Us Are Dead would be the most successful K-drama on Netflix. With a second season on the way, we don’t know who is more ravenous, the zombies or the All of Us Are Dead fanbase.

The students of a South Korean high school must fight for their lives when their school becomes ground zero for a zombie virus outbreak.

Picture: Kingdom – Netflix

From its costumes, cinematography, action scenes, story, and the zombies, Kingdom is undoubtedly the best zombie series on Netflix. We’d love nothing more than to see a third season to conclude the story, but given how expensive it is to produce one episode, let alone one season, we’ll have to settle for two excellent seasons for now.
